    Smitty18---How's your hand doing? Have you been able to do any fishing?

    Hey Piney,
    The hand is still being a pain in the butt. I had a major setback Saturday when I discovered I cant make an omlet. I actually went fishing this morning and hammered the sunfish. Came home with dinner, that is always a good feeling.

        Well TGO, I got in a fight and broke my hand upside the other guys head. He needed to learn that it is not nice to push people.

              Well TGO,
              I am pretty bad at casting left handed. As for reeling in, even with my cast keeping it still, I can only fish for about ten minutes because the muscles that are used in reeling pull at the break making it hurt alot.

                  Smitty---I used a cane pole a lot when I was one handed. Used crickets for bait because you can crush their heads and take your time getting them on the hook. The fish still bite them just fine.

                    TGO,
                    Personally, I would rank sunfish behind catfish, walleye, crappie, and perch but above any store bought fish. Yeah reeling is pretty painful so i have been mainly jigging and pitching. I also now have a nasty case of scope eye. I could handle everything up to the .222 but the the .22-250 smacked me right in the face.

                          by FirstBubba
                          So far, I've built a "bee vacuum" and a "swarm trap".
                          When I deploy the trap this spring, I'll need at least one hive....I hope!...
